Today, Curtains Direct & Blinds are going to take some of the stress out of choosing the right curtains for your place. There is a range of different options to choose from, so we’re going to take a look at some of the more common curtains and blinds and discuss their benefits.
For Your Living and Dining Spaces
There are a few different choices for your living and dining rooms. One option is padded pelmets . These are thick, padded boxes that go over the top of your windows and are a great addition to any thick curtains or drapes. They come in a range of styles. They have the added bonus of providing your home with insulation, so they’ll help keep it warm in winter and cool in summer – this will also save money on your energy bills and make your place more environmentally friendly.
Another option for those preferring privacy is lace and sheers . They let light in (while also providing a measure of UV protection) but keep people from peeping inside. They can also be layered creatively and come in a range of colours and shades – so they can suit a variety of interior aesthetics.
Austrians and Valances are our final option for today – these heavier, more traditional curtains are placed above windows to add a nice touch to the window. They can also camouflage unsightly tracks and poles. They can create the illusion of more height than the window actually has and will really open up a room.
For the Bathroom
The bathroom can be a tricky room to choose window furnishings for. Ideally, you want something that is simple and light. This is partly due to the amount of moisture that can gather in a bathroom – but also bathrooms tend towards minimalistic in terms of décor and themes. Some basic white or light blinds are a good idea, but you could just as easily choose a light, simply patterned curtain as well!
For the Bedroom
Privacy is your top priority when it comes to choosing window dressings in the bedroom. You’ll also want something that blocks out noise and light – ensuring that you get a peaceful, restive sleep. Keeping this in mind you would be best to choose some lace curtains with some heavier drapes to either side. That way the drapes can be opened during the day and the lace will let in the light and warmth – without compromising the privacy and sacred space that is your bedroom!
Other Helpful Tips
There are other things to keep in mind when shopping for window dressings! One is that you can easily have blinds and curtains custom made to suit your home. You can choose the fabric, patterns and colours so that all the elements of your home will blend together nicely.
Another tip is to consider the length of your curtains – some people prefer the curtains puddling around their floor. This helps to protect the floor from UV rays. Others prefer their curtains and blinds to sit flush with the floor. It’s all relative, so choose a length that suits you!
